Kiko's name may come from combining the first two letters of both words in King Kong's name. Kiko is never referred to by name in the film itself, but is called either "Little Kong" or just "Baby."
Kiko closely resembles his father, but stands about 12 feet tall and possesses white fur and light gray skin.
Kiko was encountered by Carl Denham and the beautiful stowaway girl Hilda Petersen on Skull Island in the months following King Kong's rampage and death in New York. Much more gentle than his father, Kiko tagged along with Denham and Hilda as they explored the island. When they were attacked by a giant cave bear, Kiko protected them and defeated the bear, and later did the same when they were attacked by a Styracosaurus. When an earthquake struck Skull Island and tore the island apart, Kiko helped Denham and Hilda to escape, sacrificing his own life in the process as he drowned.
As an April Fools Day prank, Peter Jackson made an entry in his video production diary of himself and the cast of the 2005 film proclaiming that they were remaking Son of Kong. The described plot involved Ann Darrow, Carl Denham, and Jack Driscoll returning to Skull Island and discovering Kiko, and riding on his back at some point. Eventually Kiko would be taken from the island, and fight in World War II with two Browning Machine Guns mounted on his shoulders. It should be noted that in the true continuity, Kong was the last of his kind, as confirmed by Carl Denham on a 1935 ecological expedition to Skull Island.
Kiko seems to have inherited his father's strength and intelligence. Despite his young age, Kiko is a capable combatant as he is able to fight and defeat a giant cave bear and a Styracosaurus, using both brute strength and strategy.

- In Peter Jackson's Son of Kong April Fools Day prank, Kiko was portrayed through stock footage of the gorilla from the remake ofMighty Joe Young, based on the 1949 film that used the same production team as the original King Kong film, as well as a white colored test animation model, and a crude sketch by Peter Jackson.
